Check our frequently asked questions below
Will I have to diet or exercise after the procedure?Exercise and physical activity in general is recommended after bariatric surgery. Just daily short walks at first will help you recover in a healthy manner, reduce any risks from the surgery and help you return to a normal life as quickly as possible. After 4-12 weeks (depending on the type of surgery) you can start cycling, walking, progressing to swimming once your wound has healed and then on to weights or more vigorous activity as you recover and start losing the weight. We have found that our patients are eager to get going as they start to enjoy more energy than ever before.
When can I start exercising again after surgery?Right away! You will take gentle, short walks even while you are in the hospital. The key is to start slow. Listen to your body and your surgeon. If you lift weights or do sports, stay “low impact” until you are given the all-clear (avoid competition, think participation). Build slowly over several weeks. If you swim, your wounds need to be healed over before you get back in the water.
Does type 2 diabetes make surgery riskier?It can. Be sure to follow any instructions from your surgeon about managing your diabetes around the time of surgery. Almost everyone with Type 2 Diabetes sees big improvement or even complete remission after surgery. Some studies have even reported improvement of Type 1 Diabetes after bariatric procedures.
Can I have surgery if I have heart disease?The short answer is yes. One complication of obesity is the increased rate of heart disease; therefore surgery may be the move that allows you to continue a healthy life and manage your heart disease. However, you should choose a hospital that deals with a lot of gastric surgery as they will be experienced and also select a hospital that has heart specialists who can advise the bariatric surgeons on any relevant aspects. Zulekha achieve all these aims so if you have any concerns, please speak to our team, we are happy to discuss all aspects in detail.
Will I lose my hair after bariatric surgery?Hair follicles are a complex part of humans’ anatomy, they are susceptible to so many aspects of our physiology that it is hard to give a definitive answer to this question. Some patients have noticed hair loss after surgery, while many haven’t. We try to reduce the likelihood of hair loss in our patients with a well-planned post-op diet and the correct amount of vitamins and minerals. We have found that although we cannot prevent hair loss in every single surgery, when it does occur, we can reduce the amount of loss and the duration.
Can I stop taking my medication after surgery?Bariatric surgery changes many aspects of one’s life, and medications are no exception. Most patients will be prescribed certain medications and supplements after their surgery, but the surgery can also affect what medications are safe to take for other reasons and how you take them. Your consultant will be able to advise on changes in volume to medication or even reductions in the amount of medicines required.
